Jagex originally did not want to create a Hallowe'en event for 2003, because they feared it would delay the planned release date (1 December) of RuneScape 2. In one of their polls, they asked players if they would want a new Hallowe'en event but also delay the release of RuneScape 2, or keep it on schedule and have a "pancake day" in February instead. 78% of voters wanted a 2003 Hallowe'en event. However, RuneScape 2 was still released on schedule, because the developers came in early and on weekends to do extra work.
Due to a server error at the time of the original drops, Jagex organised a second drop day where every hour for four hours the scythes were randomly dropped.
